After six months I truly I am glad I joined this group and great organization. It truly as helped me lean more of the pain I go through daily and speaking to others and helping one another. The talks over the phone is wonderful and so much help. Thank you for being here for me and the many others I am sure you are helping.

The Pain Community is a great organization for emotional and educational support. Plus it is a non-judgmental place to be able to "vent" with others experiencing similar issues.
